What is Zomig Nasal Spray and how does it work?

Zomig Nasal Spray is a popular migraine pain relief treatment. It belongs to a class of medications known as triptans. Triptans are not the same as painkillers. Instead, they work by reversing the changes in the brain that can cause migraines. By reversing these changes, Zomig Nasal Spray treats the cause of the migraine as well as reduces the symptoms.

Zomig works by reducing blood vessel swelling and preventing the secretion of noxious substances in the brain that cause migraine headache pains all over the protective layers surrounding the brain.

How long does Zomig Nasal Spray take to work?

Zomig typically provides fast relief, with many individuals experiencing a response within an hour of a single dose. While most respond within this time frame, some may take up to 2 hours to notice a reduction in headache pain. If you haven't responded after 2 hours or if the headache returns, you can consider taking a second dose of Zomig.

In clinical trials:

  • Zomig 1mg yielded a 27% to 50% response within 2 hours
  • Zomig 2.5mg resulted in a 62% to 65% response within 2 hours
  • Zomig 5mg showed a 59% to 67% response within 2 hours

Zomig Nasal Spray prescription medication alternatives

For many, Zomig Nasal Spray is the go-to when it comes to migraine pain relief medication. It must be remembered that patients respond differently to certain types of pain relief medication; that’s why it’s worth considering alternative options.

During your free online consultation with one of our pharmacists, the following alternatives may be suggested:

  • Sumatriptan Tablets: Renowned for their effectiveness, they are among the top choices for migraine pain relief. They are the generic form of the well-known Imigran brand
  • Zomig Tablets 2.5mg: Containing Zomig as its active component, this medication effectively treats migraines, whether they are preceded by an aura or not
  • Zolmitriptan Tablets: These tablets are effective in treating acute migraine headaches, although they do not prevent future episodes
  • Rizatriptan Tablets: Useful for alleviating migraines and their accompanying symptoms, such as nausea, pain, and visual disturbances. For more information, take a look at our guide that compares Rizatriptan and Sumatriptan
  • Almotriptan Tablets: These tablets aid in reducing migraine-related headaches, light sensitivity, and nausea by narrowing the blood vessels in the brain
